SOMA Ferry, Gambia
The SOMA and her sister Ferry the FARAFENNI, operated by Gambia ferry Services, were constructed in the Ukraine in 2004. After more than 10 years of operation the SOMA is now the first to go for major rehabilitation. A co-operation between the Engineering department of GPA, ProjectWise and Schottel has resulted in a completely re-designed propulsion system for the SOMA. The Schottel Navigator units with SRP 200 azimuth trusters are currently under production and are expected to be ready for shipment in July 2016. ProjectWise will take care of the supply of all necessary materials and onsite installation.
